The consensus among Dexter fans around the world is that the original series had one of the worst finales in TV history. SHOWTIME hopes that a new reboot, Dexter: New Blood, will make up for it.
The series premiered on Nov 7th, and six episodes have already been aired in this 10 episode Mini-Series, which will conclude on Jan 9, 2022. That means that if you sign up now, you can watch the entire season in one month.
Spoiler alert: On the off chance that you’re currently watching the original Dexter series anywhere, the following paragraphs will include some spoilers.
In Dexter: New Blood, Dexter has escaped Miami, lives in Upstate New York and goes by the name “Jim Lindsay”, a worker in a fishing/hunting shop. He hasn’t killed for over a decade, but clearly wants to scratch that old itch.
Dexter: New Blood is premiered on the SHOWTIME app at midnight (US time) on Sundays.
